Masturbation Worries

May be justified if masturbation is causing problems within a marriage or within a valued relationship, or if self-stimulation is compulsive, associated with extremely sadistic fantasies, or a symptom of inability to socialize. Worries about masturbation sapping health, leading to homosexuality, retarding development of adult sexual relationships, or undermining ability to have orgasm during intercourse are unfounded.

Studies have shown that people who continue to masturbate once they are in a sexual relationship are less likely to seek help for sexual problems than people who don't; for some couples, mutual or self-masturbation is part of intercourse or sex play. However, if urge to masturbate is causing anxiety, see your medical doctor and ask about sex counselling or psychotherapy. Constitutional homeopathic treatment can help to defuse anxiety and tension; in the meantime the remedies below may be helpful.
